Airwolf Episode Guide v2.1


The Airwolf Episode Guide

VERSION: 2.1   (here)
RELEASE DATE: 17/MAY/2019
close the website login box, you don't need to register to download the file
 
COMPATIBILITY: Windows XP, Vista, Win7, Win 8, 8.1 and Windows 10

The "old" airwolf Cd Rom concept started out back in 2004 and had a random release in 2005. That is no longer compatible with newer versions of windows.

So i decided to work on some NEW smaller programs that cover some specific fields of airwolf history.



Known Airdates & Production Code Screen for Each Episode



Airdates, Production Codes, Cast Bio's, Trivia, Bloopers, Behind the Scenes and a host of other little features make up a great looking guide with a stack of information.

ALL SEARCHABLE OFFLINE
NO 3RD PARTY SOFTWARE OR PLUGINS NEEDED...

NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED...

Well.. unless you wish to use the Internet Links collection accessed on any screen by simply pressing  L





Biography Screens





Bio screens for actors, actresses, stunt men, pilots, writers.. random crew..

Real names, Actors Guild names, Births, Deaths, Home Towns, Age, Heights.. its a mission...

It's a big undertaking for a project like this & again highly time consuming (its a hobby for a show i love) Not something i'm essentially looking to cash in on.

The licensing for retail would be retarded making its cost ridiculously high.




Tv Ad Clippings



Imagine on an "Episode Screen" you could press the letter  C  and it opens up a box were you can view the tv guides clippings for the actual episode.

OR

Imagine pressing  C  on the "Episode List" to view all clippings from that specific series of episodes.

It's a project no ones taken on simply because theirs no way to make money off it.. Likewise with the merchandise guide, no money to be made off that neither...






The Movie Information Screen


I don't no the future of this project, but i have ideas, some will work, some legally wont work.. 

Imagine on an episode/series "list"  you could press  P  for promo & a screen pops up with all the promo photos from that specific series.. or press P  on an episode screen for promo photos featured from that specific episode, sadly not directly legal.

The behind the scenes aspect "is possible" but its limited to the photos available to me & the community. We have sharks, every time a crew member dies. anyone pops up with photos they disappear and so do the photos.. Seller & Buyers prerogative.. i get it.. but (me & others) have seen people offer photos freely & they've been persuaded to sell & vanish... again sadly there choice..

All season 1 to 3 (credited stars are in) and faces have been added to 99.9% of them. A lot of credits have been fixed  in relation to incorrect information seen on other websites. A lot of credits have been expanded along with character names too. As of v2.1 it is the most accurate Airwolf cast listing ever compiled.

At some stage this software should pretty much be a video editors hand book, searching for something like  REFUEL  and pressing   N   on either of the screens offered gives a good example of that.  You'll also find on season 1 & 4 episode screens you can press  D  for  Dialogue (sadly season 2 & 3 has no subtitles.. unless you have them ?)
Game mod and addon makers can also make use of the head shots and heights, the diversity of this resource is only limited by the content and the user..

The work goes on with this project randomly, so use the update option to check for any or "follow" the post in the fb group HERE.

THINGS I NEED TO DO / ADD / FIND

Have to add bios for editors / art dept / stunts and add their names to the eps search terms
Have to (want to) skim through S1-3 and add more background and uncredited extras
Have to identify and add face images to every S4 bio without one
Have to locate Older script revisions for trivia information <--- CAN YOU HELP
Have to write the short S4 episode summaries
Have to add the S4 Ep list mouse over teaser text 
Have to track down birthdays not easily found by google, noted as ??/???/19?? for now
Have to start gathering more blooper information for all seasons
Have to list the rest of the cast / crew with the mouse over preview images
Have to hunt down a few missing tv guide clippings <--- CAN YOU HELP
Have to link up more Memorial ID's
Have to hunt down more on-set photos.. probably no chance of that  :(
Have to gather more work histories to implement the use of W on more bio screens
FINAL STAGE PREP ITEMS THAT'LL DRASTICALLY INCREASE ITS SIZE
Have to gather episode screen shots
Have to render and add 79 episode teasers
